Application Server Fails to Restart When Converting to an SSL-Enabled Environment (4723776)

If you attempt to restart the Sun ONE Application Server after installing a certificate, then enabling security, the restart fails. A message indicates that the server failed to receive a password.

When the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is not enabled, passwords are not cached, which results in the failure of restart. The restart command does not support the transition from non-SSL to SSL enabled mode.

Note –

This problem only occurs the first time the server is restarted. Subsequent restarts work fine.
